By saying that Flash is part of "the full web experience" may have been true three years ago, but it's not today.

Flash is still used by 20.7% of all websites (source). I'd say one-fifth of the web is a pretty substantial part of "the full web experience". Yes, as you can see by the historical trend, Flash is on its decline, but it's still too early to exclude it altogether.

Of course, a memory bump isn't a big deal...if Apple really wanted to undermine the launch all they'd have to do is secretly release pics of an iphone 6 protoype...(real or fake)...or an Apple TV prototype (real or fake)...or...(insert anything big here!); but again...never let common sense get in the way of histrionics!

Seeing how all they did was add more storage I do not feel like this will have any impact on bb10. Now if they were to release a revamped version of the ipad with more storage that may have affected it a little but even then, I think more would be interested to see a brand new OS over just a new product running the same old IOS.

Just throwing this out there...how do we know they will release it a day before BB10 Launch?? BB10 Launch is today...soooo the iPad was released yesterday?? lol Also we do not know if BB10 phones will be shipped Feb 5th, so we really don't know that Apple is releasing the iPad a day before the BB10 Shipping Date. For all we know we can buy the phones tomorrow, and the iPad will be 5 days behind BB10!

well,apple right now is desperately in need of market boosters so they could reclaim their number 1 spot from ExxonMobil as the most expensive company, but I don't think this move is the right one cuz the talk on people's lips right nw is bb10. so beat that apple!!!

It takes a special form of dementia to link the minor 128gb upgrade of the iPad to RIM's press event today and a plan by Apple to truncate BB10 buzz.
BB10's release was supposed to mark a turning point for Crackberry forums. I hope this kind of inane topic doesn't happen often going forward.

The world's oldest OS combined with new overpriced hardware that appeals to a vanishing small audience. These are desperate times for Apple. Can't wait for the iPhone6, that new NFC chip that everyone else has had for 2 years should price that puppy near 1K. Good luck with that.

Not that I have anything against other platforms, I just like BlackBerry better and want them to do well. I understand the move by Apple, its called "business sense".......it make sense to put a distraction in the minds of consumers when there might be more competition from other platforms.

Is there supposed to be a full moon or what ???
21 more minutes people, stay focused.
This was just a move to jack up the average selling price, without raising the selling price. It was not an event, just a notice that "Hey, we upped the available storage on the iPad." Most people won't need it, but some will, so it was a smart, long overdue move on their part.
